Why is it so Easy to be Thin in Japan?

Comparing the food environment of the U.S. to Japan's. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned This video highlights the difference between the food environment of America and Japan. America's obesity rate is about 30% (biggest state is 37.7%, smallest 22.3%) whereas Japan's obesity rate is 3.5% While there's other countries on each side of the obesity spectrum, I chose to compare these two because I grew up in America and spent the last 7 years here in Japan. The places that I describe as "reasonably healthy" in Japan aren't necessarily places I recommend as "optimally healthy" - I'm simply point out that while convenient food in America ranges from very unhealthy to unhealthy, convenient food in Japan ranges from very unhealthy to pretty healthy.

HOW to quit Sugar & Unhealthy Habits
 
15:00
The key to quitting sugar is understanding the 5 things in your way: Your brain, environment, habits, gut and (maybe) friends. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned ( Bitcoin Donations: 1G8K61AS6bytBUcqNzzag7xuo6XJ6SCU7J ) Diet and health has always been a big topic as of recently, especially with the number of overweight and obese people with diabetes increasing. While there is a bit of a fight between low carb and high carb, the thing that deserves the most attention is quitting sugar, as cutting out refined sugars and processed foods is the most sure-fire way to improving health and regulating weight.

Fasting vs. Eating Less: What's the Difference? (Science of Fasting)
 
12:50
This is about the drastic physiological differences between fasting and eating less ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned *NOTE* One of the key things in being able to fast in a healthy matter is entering the state of ketosis - that is, switching your metabolism from burning carbohydrate to burning fat. *Considering most people have been burning carbohydrate their whole lives* this can make fasting a challenge. Upton Sinclair recommends doing quite long fasts - 12 days, but you may want to work your way up to longer fasts. Unless you are relatively keto adapted (or have experience with fasting of course), it's important that you take precautions while doing a fast. Fasting isn't inherently dangerous, *but diving into fasting when your body is in no way geared for it can be.* I recommend doing more research before doing longer fasts. "The Complete Guide to Fasting" (http://amzn.to/2tQjxXa) is a good book to start with. As Tim Ferriss puts it: Please don't do anything stupid and kill yourself. It would make us both quite unhappy. Just in case I should also say that of course you need to balance fasting with eating - You need to survive off of something. I have been doing intermittent fasting the past year (22 hours fasted, 2 hours eating - you can widen it to 16/8, which still provides great benefits) and will fast for a couple days every other month or so. Several other people have recommend a routine like this - Tim Ferriss recommends doing a 3 day fast once per month and a 7 day fast once per year. Also make sure you're getting enough fat, protein, micronutrients and fiber to maintain a healthy weight and healthy body - *excessive* fasting can be very dangerous. Books Mentioned: "The Obesity Code" by Dr. Jason Fung - http://amzn.to/2rXtalh "The Fasting Cure" by Upton Sinclair - (If you google the title you can find the full book online) "Tools of Titans" by Tim Ferriss - http://amzn.to/2rX6P7E [BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I've been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I've already read.

Intermittent Fasting & Hunger - What the Science says
 
11:02
The Science behind what is really making you hungry when you're fasting. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned This video will explain why hunger won't get worse and worse while fasting and why keeping your blood glucose and insulin low & why trying a keto diet will help you adapt to fasting a lot easier. When I first started doing intermittent fasting, handling the hunger was quite difficult. I tried several things to try and make myself less hungry without breaking the fast, but what was most helpful was knowing that it would go away on its own, and why this was the case. So, I hope that this video helps those of you trying out prolonged or intermittent fasting - hunger is pretty much inescapable, there is going to be some level of discomfort when trying out fasting, but it's very encouraging to know that things will change and hunger will naturally go away.

Why Meditate?  |  Change your Brain's Default Mode
 
14:04
Neuroscience behind why meditation helps you control your mind. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned Someone wiser than me said that "taking on the practice of meditation is not so much adding something to your life, but rather removing things, obstacles to you awareness." This is definitely in line with the point of the video. Myself included, (it seems) most of us are constantly trying to find ways to keep ourselves operating at a faster, more productive, more focused pace. Like turning up the volume on the stereo when we want to hear more clearly, we try and will ourselves to focus "harder" as well as amp our brains' ability to focus by taking stimulants like coffee. The kind of improvement that meditation provides isn't so much like this- instead, it's like hearing more clearly by walking into a quieter room. For me, meditation has turned down the loud mind chatter offering up all kinds of activities that are different from what I'm trying to do in the moment, improving focus in a subtle but effective way. There are several other health benefits, which are outside the scope of this video, but I don't much like that meditation is presented as a panacea nowadays. It has vast benefits, and I'm sure anyone would benefit from it, but I like Dan Harris's non-overpromising remark that it makes him "10% Happier" Books Mentioned: "Flow" by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - http://amzn.to/2ziiOE3 "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of The Bicameral Mind" by Julian Jaynes - http://amzn.to/2zgSOsC "10% Happier" by Dan Harris - http://amzn.to/2hAqCHC "Homo Deus" by Yuval Noah Harari - http://amzn.to/2irbv2F "Waking Up" by Sam Harris - http://amzn.to/2AgKHui For business inquiries: joseph.everett.wil@gmail.com

How the Internet Redesigns your Mind | Choose your Default Mode
 
10:21
This video is about the choice we constantly have to make throughout the day now that we have the internet in our pockets. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned (The irony of me inviting you to follow me on the platform I just ridiculed for promoting distractibility in people is doing well. I fed and put him to bed.) The point of the video is to encourage people to be mindful of how they use the internet, as what information you put into your minds is important just like the food you put in your stomach. It's a fantastic tool so there's no need to "quit" it, just be aware of how it affects you. Nicholas Carr's book "The Shallows" (http://amzn.to/2na38dq) was an excellent read and raises some unexpected points about how the internet affects the inner workings of your mind Cal Newport's book "Deep Work" (http://amzn.to/2n3tRM3) was also a source of inspiration to make this video. In the book, he thoroughly makes the case that to reach enhanced levels of productivity and be successful in your professional or artistic pursuits, you really need to carve out long periods (2 hours) of time where you can work absolutely focused - no interruptions whatsoever.

Intermittent Fasting - How it Affects Sleep
 
06:51
It's common to have sleep trouble with fasting, but intermittent fasting should actually improve sleep. Here's why. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned I get questions every now and then about intermittent fasting affecting people's sleep, and most people after just a few days find that their sleep is actually better. If you've been doing intermittent fasting for more than a week and are still having trouble with sleep, you should try shifting your eating window to earlier in the day (why is partly explained near the end of this video). However, (this may be unfortunate news...) it seems that coffee starts this eating window. As Dr. Rhonda Patrick says on the Joe Rogan show (https://youtu.be/uxM_CLsvieE?t=2h34m45s - Should start at time stamp 2:34:45) : Caffeine is a xenobiotic, it has to be metabolized. The first thing non-water thing you put into your body is going to start all these different clocks that affect metabolism, so after the clock starts, you want to consume everything in at least a 12 hour time frame (& earlier in the day) to reap the benefits of more optimized metabolism. Here is another check out this excellent interview with Dr. Satchin Panda and Dr. Rhonda Patrick: https://youtu.be/-R-eqJDQ2nU discussing the benefits of time restricted feeding.

How to Learn a Language: INPUT  (Why most methods don't work)
 
13:58
The first 500 people to click my link will get two months of Skillshare Premium for FREE! http://skl.sh/learned4 ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned RECOMMENDED BOOKS to get started in developing a productive approach to learning a language: ・Principles and Practice in Second Language Acquisition by Stephen Krashen ・Fluent forever by Gabriel Wyner ・Fluent in 3 months by Benny Lewis ◆I don't agree with everything in these books. For example, Benny Lewis has some great approaches to language, but I don't agree with "Use the Language from Day 1" unless you are entirely comfortable embarrassing yourself in front of strangers. As per Krashen's Input Theory, The affective filter hypothesis states that learners' ability to acquire language is constrained if they are experiencing negative emotions such as fear or embarrassment. I totally agree with this based on my experience and think this is why "classroom language teaching" does not work. You are risking embarrassment every time the teacher calls on you and may be in fear of failing as you study the language. ◆Also, I do not think techniques for "memorizing" words are a good use of your time, unless you are taking a language test. If your aim is to learn the language to where you can understand media in that language and have enjoyable conversations, then mnemonics are not helpful. This is because they facilitate "learning" of the language and not "acquisition." For example, if someone says "Do you know what taberu means?" You can access your mnemonic of "I eat on a table [TABEru means eat!]," but if someone says to you "issho ni gohan tabenai?" you probably won't be able to rapidly comprehend this phrase and respond in a natural way. ◆The distinction between acquisition and learning is tricky, but very important to keep in mind while you develop methods to acquiring your target language in an efficient manner. ・Beginner Vocabulary: Try and find the "Core 100" words of your target language. After you get those down, move on to the next 100 and so on. The "core" is the most commonly used words (make sure the list you get distinguishes between the 100 most commonly used spoken words and written words) Relevant resource: https://fluent-forever.com/the-method/vocabulary/base-vocabulary-list/ ・Beginner Grammar: I recommend Tim Ferriss's "13 Sentences for introducing yourself to the Grammar. https://youtu.be/dxqo47eGOLs?t=178 SHADOWING ・Shadowing is simply finding a clip of a native speaker speaking and mimicking everything about their speech - pacing, intonation, cadence, and most importantly of course: pronunciation ・Try and shadow with video clips that show the speakers mouth so you can copy their mouth positioning. ・Especially if you're a beginner, do not attempt to shadow everything. For example a beginner shadowing session of an English sentence like "Hey bro I was thinking we should go grab some steak at that place around the corner when we finish work." would be like "Hey bro .... grab some... around the corner.... work." In short, you don't want to rush yourself to try and copy everything because you will mumble and that is not a good habit ・Be attentive of your frustration level. Shadowing is super hard and challenging. Let your goal be to slowly increase the amount of time you can sit in frustration. For example, one day you start shadowing, get super frustrated because you feel like you can't get more than 3 syllables right at a time and give up in 10 minutes. No problem. See if you can sit in that frustration for 11 minutes the next day. Don't overload yourself and turn language learning into a chore or you'll become more and more averse to doing language acquisition and shoot yourself in the foot. ・BEGINNERS may be especially frustrated, but even a little bit of shadowing will be very helpful. Work your way up from just 5 minutes or so. ・Get apps like "Video Speed Controller" for chrome so you can quickly adjust the video's speed on the fly. (Being able to quickly adjust the speed is especially helpful if you have one character in a TV show who mumbles and other characters who speak really clearly) ・RECORD yourself. This is a tip from @Dogen, and I wish I implemented this more often when I was learning Japanese, it adds more time to your practice, but really does reveal where your pronunciation is lacking. JAPANESE ・If you're trying to improve your Japanese skills, particularly pronunciation, I recommend checking out @Dogen . He's got a funny youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Dogen But if you're interested in specifics on how to step up your Japanese, check out https://www.patreon.com/dogen ・JLPT - If you're aiming to pass the JLPT, DON't waste any time on WRITING Kanji. It's 100% not necessary for the test (As of 2012). Just make sure you know the stroke order behind Kanji.

While it is not 100% understood, there is a lot that is known about the impressive health, fitness and anti-aging effects of sleep. Sleep is particularly important for memory, mental flexibility, creativity and the development of novel insights. If you're someone who's staying up to get more done, you may be sacrificing your chance at sparking that big idea that takes you to the next level. Even for the body, if you're aiming to gain muscle or just sleep, you're shooting yourself in the foot by not getting enough sleep. If this topic was interesting for you, I recommend checking out these books: -David Randall's "Dreamland" (http://amzn.to/2kxuYij) -Shawn Stevenson's "Sleep Smarter" (http://amzn.to/2jHS7Op) -Arianna Huffington's "The Sleep Revolution" (http://amzn.to/2kdtjRx) Dreamland was the most interesting read and Sleep Smarter had the most actionable and practical advice with a decent amount of science. Sleep Revolution was a bit bland, the stats and facts got old and the science part didn't cover as much as I hoped. However it did have an effect on my attitude about sleep so I will say it was worth reading.

The Japanese Hangover Drink - Turmeric Power
 
06:37
There's a popular Japanese anti hangover drink called "ukon no chikara" It doesn't work that well, here's why and, how to make a better drink. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned Turmeric contains approximately 2 percent curcumin by weight, so the 3 grams I recommend in the video will give you 60 mg of curcumin. This is already twice as much as what was said to be effective for inhibiting alcohol intoxication in the study I mentioned. I’ve actually had good results even when it’s not heated or mixed with fat, so it will probably still help if you just drink it with water if you’re in a rush. There are plenty of recipes online to make the mixture more tasty. The paper I referenced earlier said that “Dose-escalating studies have indicated the safety of curcumin at doses as high as 12 g/day over 3 months,” so most people should be OK to ramp up the dosage when it seems necessary. Then again, turmeric has been reported to have adverse effects when taken excessively. Some sources have recommended that if you’re going to make this a daily thing, you should limit intake of turmeric to only 1.5 g per day. In any case I’d say you should look more into this to see what would be best for you and what you’re taking it for. For business inquiries: joseph.everett.wil@gmail.com

It is a very valuable technique and I'm quite certain it has improved my health personally, and has improved my meditation focus. However, the explanation I often see given for what is happening when you practice the breathing technique is incomplete and can be misleading. For example, the tingling you feel is due to a lack of oxygen availability, NOT because you have more oxygen. If someone wanted to push harder thinking they're getting super charged with Oxygen this could be detrimental. I have a lot of respect for Wim Hof and don't intend to criticize him at all. I simply want to clarify some points about certain physiological processes so it can help more people get the most out of this very interesting and useful technique. ★3:20 - My breathing is a bit too fast here. See Wim's demonstration at 1:28 for the proper pace. Just to be clear: when I do the breathing at the proper pace the Pulse Oximeter shows the same results, the same tingling patterns arise and the same phenomenon I describe will occur (increased breathing volume leading to hypocapnia and decreased oxygen availability as per the bohr effect.) The Bohr effect is the key physiological phenomenon behind what is explained here. You can find more information on that at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK22596/

I really hope this addresses it in a way that y'all were hoping for. NoFap has gained a lot of traction lately as many young men are noticing high speed internet porn's highly addictive properties. Some are noticing worsened confidence, high anxiety and even being improperly diagnosed with ADHD without thinking that what they do in private could be affecting them. It's difficult because our biology wants us to look at porn (really it wants us to create babies) and several doctors say porn and masturbation are healthy and natural - even that porn is good to spice up marital love lives. However, what we're dealing with since around 2000 is completely new and nothing like a playboy magazine.

LESS Breath: Better Health? | Mouth Breathing vs. Nasal Breathing

Get 10% off any purchase here: http://squarespace.com/WIL ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned This video is about the importance of training yourself to breathe properly to improve health and even exercise performance. The series Stranger Things has somewhat brought the term "mouth breather" back into circulation, but there needs to be more education on the importance of avoiding breathing through the mouth at all times - even when asleep. Patrick McKeown's book "The Oxygen Advantage" ( http://amzn.to/2p66IIz ) is a must-read book for anyone who breathes. Everyone else, you're off the hook. - - - - - - - - MOUTH TAPING & Stuffed Noses Some points about the mouth taping to be careful. For the most part taping the mouth isn't dangerous unless you have a nasal obstruction. If you can't breathe with the tape on then you wouldn't fall asleep in the first place. However it is possible that in the middle of the night you could roll into some position that makes it hard to breathe through the nose, which should just cause you to roll over again or you'd just wake up. However, just in case: ■Make the tape easy to take off: You can pat the piece of tape on the back of your hand to remove some of the adhesive before putting it on. Fold it at both ends to make a tab you can pull on to take it off ■Don't tape your mouth after drinking alcohol (or drugs) and it's better not to wear it if you've eaten dinner soon before bed. Patrick McKeown recommends to finish dinner at least 2 hours before sleeping ■If it makes you anxious, try just wearing the tape while awake until you're comfortable with it. If you really don't like the idea of taping your mouth, you can get an anti-snoring chin strap instead which will keep your mouth closed. [Stuffed Nose] Patrick McKeown addresses this in the book, here's one of the nose unblocking techniques: -Sit in a chair -After a gentle exhalation, close your mouth and pinch your nostrils -Gently nod your head back and forth until you feel the urge to breathe. -Keep your mouth closed but attempt to gently inhale through the nose -Unless you simply cannot breathe through the nose at this point, continue to breathe lightly in and out through your nose. -If the nose is still stuffed, repeat the exercise. (Repeat up to 4 times in one sitting though)

Is Gluten that bad for your health? | The Science

This is the question that the video covers. Books like wheat belly have enhanced the popularity of gluten free diets, but due to their very rapid increasing popularity, such diets have redeemed the status of "fad." Nutrition is always complicated, as the human body is - this topic is no different. I covered some of the reasons why cutting out gluten should evoke weight loss and improve health, especially gut health and conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, but there are actually a couple more reasons to avoid gluten not mentioned here. A PDF with the transcript and sources can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/16851328 ________ ★Correction: Please disregard the table shown at 4:09 as it doesn't actually present a significant difference in muscle & liver lipids in the control and gluten free mice. Based on the other findings in the study, the point that gluten could exacerbate insulin resistance, diabetes and fatty liver still stands. (The study suggests that gluten results in metabolic alterations in lipid and glucose metabolism in GF group instead reduction of lipid absorption.)
